I can't thank you enough! I failed the first time I took the exam by 4 points. I did not feel as though I was prepared. This time I passed by 10 points and brought up my score by 14 points!! Not only did I pass the exam, but I feel I learned a lot that I needed to learn, which will help me in my practice! Thank you!
I passed my test today...AGAIN! I passed once before when I was living in North Carolina in March 2015. I moved to Alaska 6 months ago, and the social work board required me to take it again. I studied using Therapist Development Center both exam preparation times. I cannot thank this system enough for helping me be organized, and assisting with a study schedule to keep me on track. I would recommend this study system to anyone!
I took your advice to 'attack the test' and I felt well prepared. I was anxious going into the test, but I took your advice and I reminded myself of the problem solving strategies I'd learned through this program. The mock exams were spot on with the actual exam. If you follow this program, you will pass.
I really appreciated this study prep method. I liked that this company thought about the different ways that people learn. The best for me was the audio. I would listen to it while driving to and from work and while I was working. I also appreciated speaking with Bethany before the exam. I am happy to report that I passed the LCSW exam on 2/13/2017. I couldn't have done it without this group. Keep up the great work!
I purchased this course in October and only studied about 3 hours a week until I took the exam in February. I felt very prepared. In fact, the questions on the actual exam were easier than the questions in this course. I am so glad I took this course.
I really appreciate the responsiveness of my questions through email and the ability to extend my time several times due to needing to change my test date. Thanks!
Therapist Development Center really helped me for the Law and Ethics exam. I struggled the first time because I did not pay attention as well as I should have to the questions like I was instructed to by TDC. I did not really focus on the questions when they asked if it was an ethical issue or a legal one. I also skimmed the questions because I am a fast reader. As a result I did not pass the first time. When I studied for the test the second time, I paid much more attention to the questions. It really is about reading the questions in their entirety before moving on and making sure what type of resolution you are looking for: legal or ethical. When I slowed things down, I did fine and passed my exam. Thank you for this study guide. It was a lifesaver. I will definitely be using it for my clinical exam in the future as well.
I was so anxious about taking this exam as I only had about a week to really study. This study plan and Amanda's practical approach and rationales helped so much to reinforce what I already knew while teaching me so much more and giving me the confidence to knock this test out the park on the first go round. Now for the ASWB and I totally plan to use TDC again! Can't thank you enough Amanda!!
Excellent way to study and prepare, feedback on wrong answers is immediate, supported with correct answer and why it is the correct answer. So the rationale stayed with me, which I drew on while taking the test.
I used TDC for both my Law and Ethics and Clinical exam. I passed both on the first attempt. They did a great job preparing me for the exams and I was able to complete the ASW Clinical with more than two hours to spare. I specifically felt the lectures were useful and all of the quick studies. Thank you TDC for helping me be very well prepared for both examinations.
Great program! I took the exam prior using a program where they taught all sorts of acronyms and during the test I was so focused on them that it took up way too much time, plus I failed. It took me a month and a half to go through this program twice and it gave me the knowledge and confidence to pass!
I had put in hundreds of dollars into other programs and has previously taken the LCSW exam 3 times and failed! I was so scared to take it again! Then a good friend and I met up for dinner and she introduced this program to me, took her test and passed! I was convinced to give the Therapist Development Center a try! Amanda and Bethany are amazing! Even when I was discouraged and didn't feel like I was getting the information, Bethany was right there encouraging me along! Amanda's audios, the practice tests, and quizzes, made me feel like I knew the information! I was finally getting it! I had been trying to get my LCSW for the last 10 years! All the way to the testing center, Bethany was helping me finalize things I didn't understand and I listened to Amanda's pep talk, and followed all the directions Amanda and Bethany gave me! And I passed!!!!! The questions were very similar to the test! I felt confident during the test, I was calm and I had peace! And I passed! It was truly one of the best days of my life! If I had to do it all again, this program is the #1 program I would recommend to anyone! And I've already told a few people who are ready to pursue their exam! Thank you ladies! You made my dream come true! I cannot thank you enough!
I couldn't be more thankful for the Therapist Development Center! After taking the exam once and missing it by 5 questions I knew I had to try something different. I heard about this program through a friend and signed right up! I'm a normally anxious person, but the schedule provided made me feel like I was getting everything I needed and put me at ease. I felt confident yesterday during the exam and followed the recommendations provided in the program. Needless to say I answered well over the amount of questions needed to pass! :) I have already recommended it to several colleagues. Thank you so much!
I passed on the first go round. This program is amazing. It truly helped me narrow down my studying. Just thinking of the tons of potentially tested material was overwhelming however, the program organized it for me. My only responsibility was to make sure I studied on the days I set for myself. After completing this program I was well prepared to tackle the test.
I took the LCSW Clinical Exam earlier today, and I am speechless! Passing this exam on the first try meant so much to me, as I'm sure it would mean just as much to others. As clinicians, we put in so much effort with grad school, and post-grad accumulation of clinical hours through the countless services that we provide to our clients and their families, etc., that seeing all of it lead to this last exam, puts a lot pressure on us. Thankfully, I had thorough preparation through the TDC materials. The problem solving skills kicked in automatically, and throughout the exam I had Amanda's Final Pep-talk in my head (even when I heard the reaction of someone sitting near me that did not have a favorable outcome with their results). I kept encouraging myself along, and the questions seemed manageable the more I zoned in. I would only reiterate being mindful of time, accept that some questions will be unknowable (and that's okay, but give it your best try and move on), take at least two breaks (post 85 questions, and prior to reviewing marked questions), really read the questions word for word, use the marked options as necessary, but not excessively, and take some time to exercise when prepping for your exam (it helps your mind, your body, and it helps build stamina). You can do this! P.S. While prepping for the exam, it might be tempting to question whether or not the TDC materials alone are enough, or if you should consider using other materials. Trust me, TDC is enough...I'm really glad, I didn't fall into dabbling between study materials, because it could have likely caused my problem solving skills to shift. However, only you will truly know what you need, and hopefully, after putting in consistent time and effort, you'll receive favorable results! Good luck, all! And thank you TDC for first getting me through the LCSW Law and Ethics Exam, and now the Clinical Exam. I can officially say that I am an LCSW! *Sigh of relief*.
I wanted to share that when I took the exam I needed to get a minimum of 96 answers correct to pass the LMSW. I achieved a score of 121. I was able to score 25 points higher than I needed due to your system. When I decide to look into my LCSW I plan to use your program, and hopefully Heidi will still be able to tutor me! Thanks again!
I truly felt prepared with TDC. Honestly, the practice exams are what did it for me. I felt pretty good about those 'what would the social worker do FIRST' questions based on all of the quizzes and mock exams, and the helpful rationales. The other study programs out there don't have such helpful rationales, either. Lastly, all of the tips and helpful suggestions truly made a difference. After all of this I do feel more prepared for this career! Thanks, TDC!!
I passed the LCSW exam with the aid of the study material and lectures. I would highly recommend the program. I liked the lectures which helped me remember key concepts for the exam.
I cannot thank TDC and the entire team enough! I finally passed my exam after failing twice and I could not have done it without this program. I gained such a tremendous amount of knowledge and the encouragement I received from both the recordings and my coach gave me the opportunity to take the exam with confidence and PASS!!! I have already told my friends about this program who are starting their exam prep! Thank you again!!
Very helpful to have all the needed test info in one program.
